Starting at 2:39 we have the best view yet of the living room, properly lighted and lasting long enough to take us from the "back" of the space, where we don't yet see everything ahead, through the room on an arcing path to a terrace door at left of the fireplace.

The hook shape of the terrace plan is a form we see from time to time in the work; some perfs have a similar shape in them, sort of like a comma or a quotation mark ?




I"m sorry, but all I see in that picture is limp and angular genitalia, which is as appropriate a description of that project as you'll find.

Another one, not identical, appears at the bottom of this plan of the Palmer house:

I haven't yet found the "quotation marks" perforated board (perf) which I had in mind . . .

I hadn't realized how bird-like the plan of Chahroudi is, like a svelte quail.
